Having been in the military, and the corporate and entrepreneurial world, I have seen my share of management and leadership styles. People sometimes have a tendency to confuse a position, rank, title or being a bossy manager with leadership. 

Bossing people around does not make one a good leader. A true leadership role is earned with the respect of the team. Having a title or placing oneself in a position above others is no guarantee of becoming a good leader. Leadership can only be earned with the respect of others. It is earned through hard work, experience, observation, expertise and loyalty. 

Leadership is not gender specific, it is not conferred either. It has to be learned and earned. When one combines those traits there is potential for leadership.

Court rules that Verizon has the right to ignore Net Neutrality rules. Which may be bad news for Americans who enjoy using the internet unimpeded by companies like Verizon who want companies to pay for access to their network. 

The eventual outcome of this ruling, if left unchallenged, may determine whether internet providers can restrict some content, for instance, by blocking or slowing down access to particular sites or charging websites to deliver their content faster. Another way would be to chargeextra to consumers who already pay some of the highest rates for access in the world.

Verizon Communications Inc. won its challenge to U.S. open-Internet rules as an appeals court said the Federal Communications Commission overreached in barring broadband providers from slowing or blocking selected Web traffic.

After losing 1 billion in funding and 8,000 employees over the last three years the IRS states: last year they audited 0.96 percent of individual tax returns in fiscal 2013, declining for the second straight year. Additionally the IRS increased the revenue it collected from tax enforcement by 6.3 percent to $53 billion last fiscal year, according to data released Wednesday.

Revenue generated was significantly down to $9.83 billion, less than $10 billion for the first time since at least 2003. 

This year House republicans seek to further reduce the IRS funding by over two billion this year bringing the funding to 9 billion from the 11.2 billion it received in 2013. 

While the IRS is a much and universally hated institution it would seem that funding it pays for itself with audits on people who evade taxes owed.

Today the Internal Revenue Service issued Notice 2014-21 in an effort to clarify the tax treatment of bitcoin and other virtual currencies before the April 15th, 2014 tax deadline. The guidance applies to both current and past transactions involving virtual currencies. The ramifications are widespread. Here’s a summary of what the IRS said.

Some interesting research regarding the EITC and Child Tax Credit. This research seeks to identify areas of economic opportunity for upward mobility within the United States. 

This interactive map is a good graphic allowing a visual comprehension of opportnity areas in the United States. http://www.equality-of-opportunity.org/
